The Bergamot release new single ‘Bones’.

 American indie-folk-rock band The Bergamot  have released a heart wrenching song called ‘Bone’s released on World Suicide Prevention Day. Written about a personal experience of helping a brother who tried to commit suicide, this song will be relatable for all. As I listen now, I have tears in my eyes as 3 weeks ago a student I know committed suicide and it still is raw. This song,  ‘Bones’ is a song that I wish he heard.  The lyrics are so cleverly written and really touched my heart. The supporting music sets the scene for the message. Vocally Nathaniel Hoff and Jillian Speece are a match made in heaven with the harmonies that are pure gold. ‘Bones’ is worth a listen. The Bergamot are Indie music at it’s absolute best.

LYRICS:

It’s hard to carry a burden

If you don’t have any bones

You can’t just fly away

If your wings are made

Of stone

Waiting can be fun

If you can live forever

Take your place in line

How far there is no

Measure

This life

That we live

It’s all that we take

All that we give

‘Cuz I don’t believe that it’s true

Just do as I say

But not as I do

Because I want to believe in you

The promise you made

I’m holding on to

It’s hard to carry a burden

If you don’t have any bones

Compare the empires to angels

In all we know and love

There is a beauty in the unknown

As lightning strikes from above

This life

That we live

It’s all that we take

All that we give

‘Cuz I don’t believe that it’s true

Just do as I say

But not as I do

Because I want to believe in you

The promise you made

I’m holding on to

‘Cuz I don’t believe that it’s true

Just do as I say

But not as I do

Because I want to believe in you

The promise you made

I’m holding on to

It’s hard 

To carry a burden

Yeah, it’s hard 

To carry a burden

I said it’s hard

To carry a burden

Said it’s hard 

To carry a burden

If you don’t have any bones

If you don’t have any bones

If you don’t have any bones
